Re: [IP] Re: Paradigm Clip



.............................................................................
Excellent... I can't wait!!
I've been using the black harder-to-clip case that came with my pump.  I cut
out the little plastic window to make the button pushing easier.  It's not too
bad and clips nicely inside my jeans pocket.
I too agree that the plastic case that came with my pump is just too big and
bulky.. I just can't wear it!!
Hurry up Mini-Med.. I'm anxiously awaiting my 'availability' letter!
Cheers and Happy Holidays to all....

  MiniMed says clips will be available after January.  Paradigm owners will
  receive a letter when the clips are available and you will have to call to
  give them your color so they can send you the match to your pump color.

  "Has anyone heard anything about MM developing a clip
  for the Paradigm? I was assured by a MM rep about four
  months ago that there was one in development... I
  really hate the fact that there's no clip on the pump
  - the holster is ok, but it is HUGE - I only use it at
  home or else it feels like I'm wearing a
  walkie-talkie. The cases for the Paradigm just stink."
  Lauren,

  I was wondering about this the other day myself.  When I called MM after
  receiving my pump and no clip (which is mentioned in the instruction
  booklet), the rep told me the same thing and that the previous clip kept
  breaking off so they were working on another one.  You'd think if they can
  develop a piece of equipment that can deliver precise doses of insulin,
they
  could make an unbreakable clip.  The "Rocket Science" part has already been
  done.  I don't like the cases either.  I'd really like a clip too so that I
  could attach the pump to the inside of my skirt or nylons without a huge
  bulge.  Sorry this doesn't offer any ray of hope - just agreement.  Maybe
  all the Paradigm users should call them up and keep nagging them about it.
